What a year its been here at RK HQ. In the last 12 months we have done the london snow show, the scottish snow show, Freeze, Wakestock and boardmasters, as well as spreading the brand worldwide from the french alps, to the australian beaches, to the canadian resorts and of course to the core UK shred market.
We also have loads of new team riders including surfer Paddy Higgins, skiiers Mike Wakefield, Dan Williams and Sam Day as well as snowboarder Polly Baker. Megzy Barker has been absolutely killing the UK wakeboard scene this summer which has been great to see, so keep up the good work dude and we ll see you shredding worldwide very soon! Check out their profiles which should be up in the next week or so. Mike is also going to be skiing at Freeze this year, so look out for him hitting the massive booter at Batersea power station during Freeze festival!
We ve also stepped our game up this year and brought out our own bespoke hoodies and tees, designed to what we consider the perfect fit, slightly longer for shredding, or in general so you take that mountain steeze with you wherever you go. We also have three new snapback designs dropping in time for the snowshows which should be pretty exciting, especially after the success of our first flat peaks. They should be available to buy in the next few weeks once all our stock clears UK customs!
We have also sponsored a few new uni's this year including Leeds Snowriders, Coventry Snowsports, Bournemoth snowriders, HUSKIS, Durham Snowsports, London School of Economics and more! Hopefully we ll have to time to visit the uni's and see the societys growing.
In the next few months we have the London snow show to look forward to, as well as Freeze festival at Battersea power station. Two great shows which always get us excited for the winter, and the arrival of the first of the snow. We re also going to be in Morzine all season, so we have a great base to explore the entire region and hopefully visit lots of other resorts.
We also now have a pimped out bright orange VW transporter which is touring the streets of the UK and europe, spreading RK love one town at a time!
In general, its going to be a great few months, and keep checking on here for our latest updates! Hopefully see you all at the snow shows in October!
